Vienna Orchestra to Return Painting Stolen by Nazis

FSWC Reports:

From Reuters:

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will return to a French family a valuable painting that was looted by the Nazis and given to the orchestra as a gift in 1940 by a Viennese secret police official.

The heirs of the painting's late owner, Marcel Koch, will receive "Port-en-Bessin" by neo-Impressionist Paul Signac at a ceremony this year, the orchestra said on Saturday, announcing the latest step to address its past association with Nazism.
